Master of Perfection

As we are working to accomplish many tasks in a short period of time at the house, we finally have 1 room completely painted and basically move-in ready. What room is that, you ask? Why, the Master Bedroom of course. Since we will be moving into a partially finished house, I wanted one room to be completely finished so that we could relax in the room at night without staring at all that still needs to be done.

So, here is a "before" picture of the bedroom. Gotta love the baby blue curtains that Betty (former owner) hung in the windows! And that nice ashy-brown trim! (sarcasm intended)
You can see there was a lot of "stuff" lying around when we bought the place...

We started changing things up by painting all the trim a nice, clean white. It really makes the tall baseboards stand out so you notice their height and grooves...

Then we painted the walls "khaki" which warms the room and makes all the white trim really "pop" against the walls. I love this color and I'm very happy with the results.

Here's a built-in along one of the walls. It has really deep, large drawers for storing a lot of clothing items. The drawer pulls were special ordered and should arrive in a few days to top it all off. The top shelf above the drawers is coming out and Joey is going to mount our bedroom TV in that space. Our bed will be adjacent to it which will make for great movie watching!

Included in the Master Bedroom is a little room on each side of bedroom. The first room below is being used as a walk-in closet. You can also kind of view this in the pic above. Having a walk-in closet is very unusual for a house of this age, but a big bonus for us!!! And the other little room on the opposite side is pretty much a blank slate. It does have a little built-in desk (not shown), but I will probably add some shelves and use it for more storage. I love that each "closet" has its own window for lots of light. The only thing left to do is replace the lights on the ceiling and add some curtains for privacy.

I can not wait to start decorating this room. It needs window treatments, an area rug, and pictures on the wall. I'd like to get some new bedding too. But I'll be happy with it as is for now! Pin It
